Picture this, your marriage lasted for 30 years and you spent most of those years as the CEO of your family. Running a household is incredibly difficult and that contribution to a marriage is substantial. That contribution should be included when it comes to alimony conversations.
As you are going through your divorce, you need a legal team you can rely on to advocate on your behalf for spousal support. Our dedicated team of permanent alimony lawyers provide compassionate legal service during your time of need.
In Florida, there are different forms of alimony, permanent alimony is designed to provide financial assistance to a dependent spouse permanently. This type of alimony is very typical, especially if the marriage was long term.
There are many factors that are considered when determining permanent alimony in Florida. These are a few of the more common contributing factors:
- Standard of living established during the marriage
- Duration of the marriage
- Financial resources
- Earning capability
- Contributions to the marriage
- Sources of income
We are often asked if it is possible to get permanent alimony if the marriage only lasted a short time. It is possible but far less common. You would need to show that extraordinary circumstances have made it difficult to enjoy the same standard of living experienced during your marriage.
Alimony can be complicated, do not try to navigate these complex waters alone. Trust the experienced team of attorneys at Florida Women’s Law Group. We are committed to providing you a positive experience all while seamlessly handling the meticulous details.
What Our Clients Say
Ms. Julia McLaughlin was my attorney through the process and she made something that was personally scary and difficult seem like a walk in the park. Her knowledge and break down of everything helped me (someone that does not know the law) understand my options and helped me gain clarity into the road ahead. I am so thankful for her professionalism and kindness during it all! I also have to state that Ms. Pamela Rich, my paralegal, felt like a breath of fresh air. She listened to me cry and complain, she answered all my questions and held my hand through it all. Her kindness and generosity helped remove the weight from heart and I am forever grateful for her as well. Thank you all so much!

Megan M.. 2023
I want to say that so far I'm impressed with this place! I actually found this law firm online for one of my longest friends in the world who has been being bullied and mentally abused by her husband for several years. I have known her for a very long time and It has broken my heart seeing her go through what she's going through! To be married for that long and actually feel"alone" in a marriage for so many years is so terrible, I just can't even begin to imagine how she has gotten through it, but she's one of the strongest women I know. I really had hoped to help her find some firm with compassion that would really help her through this because she's been so terrified of filing for divorce and afraid her husband would cause more mental abuse for her So far your firm is making her feel such comfort and I'm so thankful 😊 I'm out of state and she really needs this! Thank you! From a fellow Navy wife who is still happily married!

Attorney Catheline aka Cat was amazing and helped me through my case and made it clear I saw all angles. She became like a sister for me and has guided & encouraged me an made me feel better about my process every step of the way. I am beyond thankful for her for being by my side to help me fight!
emily coulliette. 2022
Although they were unable to represent me due to the location I needed representation in, Susan Burch was most helpful in helping me finding me someone I could go to in my area. She was an excellent listener, gave great advice and was so caring! I would definitely use this group if I needed representation in Duval County!
MONICA WEAVER. 2022
I've received services from several law groups in Jacksonville. Florida Women's Law Group has been the most expensive but they are worth it by far. My divorce decree and parenting plan are iron tight and the attention to detail was impeccable! They were ready for any curve ball thrown at them and were there for me to answer questions and calm nerves as needed. Their office and staff are very calming :) I would trust them again in a heartbeat for any big events.

Debbie B. 2021
This team has been very professional.They are not the least expensive but they have always responded in a timely manner even when when had to stretch themselves. They were flexible, prompt and caring, even during the early, scary days of COVID. I like this team on a personal level. They went out of their way to accommodate a frail and very elderly person with kindness and compassion.

I must start by saying the Firm Liaison, Susan Birch is a true asset. She brings the personal element to the situation and helps you in one of the toughest times. I also felt very comfortable with Andrea Lehner as my representation. She was calm, professional and straight forward. I highly recommend using Florida Women's Law Group. We need more Women working with Women!

This law group was extremely helpful, very caring, they answered any questions I had even if it was a question that I had ask before. They are a very professional group of women. I had to bring my daughter a few times, and the ladies took care of her with snacks a drink. My attorney told me of a way to handle the divorce without having to drag it out. They understand your situations and will help make it as easy and smooth as possible.
